Cognitive Predictors of Self-Care Abilities in APS Clients Referred for a Capacity Assessment
June 12, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Presenter: Jason E. Schillerstrom, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
Many state legal definitions of capacity are in part dependent on a person’s ability to provide care for themselves. Persons unable to provide care for themselves because of a physical or mental condition often meet the definition for incapacity. However, when working with elders, there is often an assumption that cognitive deficits, such as memory impairment, are responsibility for the disability. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the relationship between different cognitive domains (memory, visuospatial function, and executive function) and self-care abilities. We will particularly highlight the relationship between executive function and money management ability.
